The Amalgamated Union of Foodstuff and Cattle Dealers of Nigeria has commenced an indefinite strike, following the failure of the government to address the alleged killings of its members in parts of the country.
The union is also stopping its members from moving cattle and foodstuffs to the southern part of the country
Tahir demanded N450bn compensation from the government for the losses suffered by the union members and the dismantling of illegal roadblocks on the highways.
Also, confirming the stoppage of cattle and foodstuffs to the South on Friday, the Coordinator of Miyetti Allah in Kwara State, Aliyu Mohammed, said the development was true.
Mohammed also claimed that his members were being killed.
“We are not doing anything wrong and yet our people in the forests are being killed for no just cause,” he said.
